Today is World Communion Sunday.  Our church is at its best when we reach out to sisters and brothers in need.  World Communion Sunday calls the church to reach out to all people and model diversity among God's children.  United Methodists relate to World Communion Sunday by celebrating communion with other Christians around the world on this special Sunday.  Churches, including Faith, will also receive an offering to support ethnic undergraduate and graduate students, which often enables first-generation students to attend college.  LEARN MORE

The Mary Carter Barrow Memorial Garden

You are invited to visit our newly renovated Memorial Garden courtyard.  This sacred space underwent a four-renovation to transform a deteriorating and underutilized space into a beautiful, tranquil garden for prayer, reflection, and meditation; an incredible outdoor space for social activities; and a sacred space for interments.
